Anyone watch Deadwood?

Season 3 began last night!
I struggled a bit through Season 1, but I'm glad I made it all the way through - Season 2 kicked ass and last night was awesome! I'm so glad this show is back!
It's like a Shakespeare Western with "Cocksucker", "Motherfucker" and "Cunt" used throughout!
Who wouldn't like that?!

Unfortunately, I heard the show is proving to be too expensive, so this will be the last season, followed by another short-season
(Two 2-hr episodes) ala The Sopranos. Ho-hum. All good things...

Those cock suckers know how to write dialogue!

I wonder if that is how they really spoke back then. I rather like the idea that things were "cleaner". But, what-fucking-ever.

Actually, I read an article recently about that.... the people of Deadwood were known for their fierce cursing. However, they did not use the words on the show ("Cocksucker, motherfucker, cunt...etc") - they used curse words more along the lines of "damnit, hell, etc", which for the time was shockingly vulgar. The Show's creators and writers felt being 100% accurate in the cursing wouldn't have come across the way they wanted (it would have been mild and silly), so instead they opted for more modern curse words that would have the same impact for Today's audiences.

This information was brought to you by the letter "C".

LMAO @ the letter "C".

That's kinda what I would imagine would be the shocking words of the day back then. I wonder if our horrible words were even words at all back then!! How many times can I say "back then"?

I've never seen the show... maybe I'll have to rent it on DVD.

Like I said...season 1 was a bit hard for me to "get into", but once I finished it and started watching Season 2, I really got hooked.

Some people don't dig on the language. At times its difficult to follow what they are saying, but like Shakespeare, you'll get the gist and then slowly get into the rhythm of it.

Regardless, sometimes I just watch the performances of the actors - always solid.
